This month we celebrate the rising of Puaka and the Matariki cluster of stars. We go full boffin and welcome the NZ International Science Festival to Ōtepoti Dunedin. And there's a cabaret... a poetry cabaret, no less, for National Poetry Day in August. Plus a shape poetry competition, the launch of Jenny Powell's latest collection, a Japanese garden, some Winter Tales and a science quiz. Plus, more book reviews than you can shake a stick at.
